Vous êtes cordialement invités à la présentation informelle,

You are cordially invited to attend the following informal presentation
Dating temples in Southeast Asia
Postdoctoral Research Fellow,
International Institute of Asian Studies, Leiden University

The talk will examine the different methods used for dating temple architecture, including the use of historical analogy, epigraphy, art history, architecture and archaeology. The talk will illustrate both the advantages and disadvantages of each approach, with examples taken from the study of ancient Champa, Java and Cambodia. The purpose of the discussion will be to show both the problems of temple dating and the advantages of a multi-disciplinary approach in solving questions of chronology.

Dr William Southworth is a graduate in Southeast Asian Studies from the University of Hull in the United Kingdom. He completed an MA in Archaeology at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London, in 1991 and a PhD on the origins of Champa in 2001. Between 1999 and 2002 he worked for the Centre of Khmer Studies in Siem Reap, and has since taught at the University of Bonn. He is currently involved in a project on early temple architecture in Cambodia with the University of Leiden.
